Did you know that if you drink 8 oz of cold water that is ice water you can burn 7 calories. If you drink very cold water it takes that much of your bodis energy to warm the water up to body temperature. so drink very cold water.

One pound equals 3500 Kcalories. One would have to drink a lot of ice cubes to lose weight using that system. In the psych hospital where I worked before retiring I became aquainted with water intoxication where individuals could literally make themselves drunk by drinking too much water. It was so much a problem that all drinking fountains had to be removed from one unit, and showers had to be monitored.

I drink water and sugar free drink mixes that use bottled water from morning until bedtime. I don't even like tap water because it's not cold enough. Cold water is the only way to go for me. Maybe I could lose 20 or 30 pounds drinking ice water.

well i think you have to have 8 oz all at once. np sure about chewing an ice cub but i know it is cold.i guess if it adds up to an eight ounce glss of water no sure but it is cold.
